wonko, we r talking megabytes. we do not have such sizes. at least not yet. wimb only wanted to know whether it booted, as little as that.

Sure, I know :smiling9:, but I am looking forward, it was only a preventive Q&A.

Sorry to be changing the subject a little bit, but I am sure this new discovery of mine will certainly interest alacrán. I have just discovered I should be named Mr. Fuffa (wonko knows what I mean), or if our international friends like it better, I will call myself Mr. Fluff. Ya' guys cannot imagine how much fluff I have managed to eliminate from ... Programs and Features in the control panel. I used to enable all the stuff there was. Now I have realized that most of it is unneeded, so this would be good for Alacrán to shrink his vhd's even further. I will surely be able to tell u whether there is a significant gain in booting time as well. But since alacrán set such great store by size, I can tell u I've gotten hold of an executable called compact+lzx.exe, which reduces used space on c:\ (it automatically compacts and compresses c:\ files and folders as soon as u launch it).

You mean this approach?

https://winaero.com/...thm-windows-10/

 

Now seemingly bettered:

https://github.com/I...actGUI/releases

 

It is very Windows-10-only, though some good soul made a version of the command line for 8.x (just in case):

The Compact (XPRESS 4k is the default) install is available and "exclusive" to 10 since first version, but WinNTSetup let you install in Compact mode XPRESS 4k, XPRESS 8k, XPRESS 16k or LZX from 7 to 10 since long time ago, in fact I have tried it on 7 about 2 years ago.

 

That tool mentioned by Wonko CompactGUI.exe is only a GUI for Win10 Compact.exe (do not work on previous versions like 8.x or 7), it seems nice but nothing you can't do on a short command line.

 

No news here.

Good :).

When (if) you will have the time and will to properly reference and detail the *whatever* you are doing, then we may start some constructive discussion, this is not the margin of a letter and you are not Fermat :w00t:, just for the record, and the board is also not a telegram: you are not billed on a per word basis :whistling:, a few more words won't cost you anything.

I don't think there is something better and also compatible with WinNTSetup.
